Book Review #1343 Birds of a Feather by Vanita Oelschlager
Book Review #1343
Birds of a Feather by Vanita Oelschlager, illustrated by Robin Hegan
Rating: one star (out of four)
I really liked the premise of this book. I've always been fascinated with idioms and I can imagine what children must think when they hear some of these crazy expressions. This book offered a fairly straight forward approach: it featured illustrations mimicking the idiom and then explained what the idiom really meant, covering some of the most common expressions. I wasn't a big fan of the book; the illustrations weren't my favorite. But I can see other people liking it.
